Renaissance Silver Beautifully shaped Cross with an embossed image of the Crucifixion of the Jesus Christ.
Well balanced proportions of the body in and an interesting idea of the master to showing the Glory of the Jesus Christ- his head is not slightly inclined but straight and up and his crown of thorns became a radiate crown probably at the last moments of his life on earth. The perizonium covers his body under the waist.
Artistically shape of the cross and excellent quality of the metal. Very well preserved and still Wearable. See Photo
